The wild concept with a wide-open spindle grille is back. This time with a turbo-four pot.
When Lexus unveiled the LF-NX Crossover Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show, it came with a full hybrid system that teamed a 2.5-liter unit with an electric motor for a combined output of 200 hp. The design was divisive at best, yet Lexus seemed very confident the concept was destined for production. Fast-forward a couple of months and it appears the Japanese carmaker is deadly serious about bringing the crossover to market, albeit with a different powerplant.
Set to debut at the Tokyo Motors Show this month, the LF-NX now sports a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline unit. It also has a lower center of gravity, a new front spoiler and a cutting-edge cabin equipped with a Remote Touch Interface controller and new touchpad functionality.
